Mary Younger | Director of Business Development
A hospitality veteran of over 20 years, Younger has been the recipient of numerous sales awards and has worked with a wide range of clients of all sizes, including Fortune 500 firms. She began her career in apartment management, before transitioning into corporate housing, where she worked for the largest global corporate housing firm. At Synergy, Mary is responsible for developing relationships with business based in Silicon Valley that have global housing needs.

It's not enough to have industry leading product or services if your client can't depend on you to do the right thing by them. We don't ask our clients to fit inside a one-sized box. We ask them what the box they dream of would look like and we build it from the ground up for their employees to enjoy."
